'Brie Mine' – Melting Brie Heart starter for Valentine’s Day meal


One of the world's best-known soft cheeses, Brie originated in north-east France, but is now made all over the world. Ours comes from Cotswold, it is organic and enhanced with this easy to make and great for Valentine’s Day recipe.


Ingredients

1 Brie
1 jar black truffle sauce
2 tbs flour
1 egg
1 handful breadcrumbs
1 handful hazelnuts, crushed (optional)
rapeseed oil to fry


Method

Cut the Brie into a heart shape.
Cut in half horizontally and spread with our black truffle pate for added indulgence.
Wrap loosely in clingfilm and place in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours to ensure easier to panné with breadcrumbs
Once firm, prepare three bowls; one with flour, one with beaten eggs and one with breadcrumbs (we used blitzed up sourdough with hazelnuts for additional flavour and luxury)
Put a frying pan with 0.5 cm of rapeseed oil on the hob on a medium heat.
Unwrap the heart, dip first in the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumb. If you like you can repeat the egg and breadcrumb for a thicker crust.
Shallow fry in the oil until golden brown on all sides. It will have defrosted and be oozing in the middle whilst retaining its heart shape.

Serve with a fresh salad and some caramelised onion relish for a delicious Valentines start to a romantic meal for two at home.
